I was wanting black out curtains for such a long time, so when I saw these, I just HAD to get them! Upon receiving them, I noticed the nice packaging and how soft the material was! It's almost like microfiber! I have not yet purchased rods, so I hung them on regular curtain rods but they get the job done great for now. The only reason I did not give them a 5 star review was because I noticed quite a bit of some loose threads around the rivets of both curtains, but I just cut them off and they looked great! I will have to definitely grab more curtains from Moonen for the rest of my home.
